Following the success of last year’s summer programs, the museum today announced the return of Summer Happenings at The Broad, inspired by artists in the Broad collection and the current exhibition, Oracle. The late-night series will animate important influences of leading contemporary artists through music and performance, fluctuating between happenings, salons and concerts.
 
Co-curated by luminaries such as performance artist Ron Athey; artist and Afropunk festival co-founder James Spooner; curator Ryu Takahashi; and 2016 inaugural curators Bradford Nordeen, independent curator and writer, and Brandon Stosuy, Editor-in-Chief at The Creative Independent; Summer Happenings at The Broad will be held one Saturday night a month and will occupy various spaces throughout the museum and public outdoor plaza. A constellation of thrilling musicians, performers and multimedia artists will take their thematic calling from Andy Warhol’s muse Nico, Takashi Murakami, Jean-Michel Basquiat and organizing themes from Oracle. The series features performances by Devendra Banhart, Vaginal Davis, Miho Hatori, Xiu Xiu, Zebra Katz, A Place To Bury Strangers and more. Tickets to Summer Happenings at The Broad also include access to the full museum.

Tickets for all Summer Happenings events are $25 and go on sale tomorrow, Wednesday, May 24 at noon PT. For more details head over to www.thebroad.org.
